“Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry” & Slow Money ‘Funds to Farms’ Gathering

6-6:30pm Slow Start: Mingle, light refreshments, cash bar & refreshments in the Lobby.

 

6:30-8:00pm Welcome and showing of Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry. This stunning cinematic portrait shows the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind’s eye of renowned writer, farmer, and activist, Wendell Berry. The first documentary about Berry, one of America’s most significant living writers, Look and See was filmed in and around the rolling hills of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s. Filmmaker Laura Dunn skillfully weaves Berry’s poetic and prescient words with gorgeous cinematography and the testimonies of his family and neighbors, all of whom are being deeply affected by the industrial and economic changes to their agrarian way of life.

 

Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for the communities that are so often overlooked by the media. It’s a conversation that is more urgent now than ever, as we find ourselves in a deeply divided nation where so many Americans are disconnected from the farmers who feed them.
